MIXER (TW) received one of the highest honors for bands in Taiwan, The Best Band Award at the Golden Melody Awards in 2014. Some band members had yet to graduate from college, and the members’ average age at the time was only 24 years
old. MIXER would go on to play countless shows in Taiwan, many of them in the various universities scattered around island. These shows, along with their enigmatic and engaging stage presence, and lyrical themes that portrayed the struggles of young people, helped the band build a steady reputation through word of mouth online. Circus Movement, the band’s debut album was released in June 2013, whose title track soon went on to hit one million views on YouTube. The band went on to win Best Rock Album at the Golden Melody Awards the following year. It didn’t take long for the band to capitalize on their initial success, releasing a second album Before Being Named in March of 2015. The album once again nabbed the band a Golden Melody Awards nomination for Best Rock Album. 2016 saw Mixer embark on an Asian/European tour, to promote their third album Wildlife; they were also voted online as one of the top ten Taiwanese indie bands of the year.
Musically, MIXER mixes a number of genres and elements, which gives them both a classic and modern sound. The overall package that MIXER delivers is not just a contemporary rock band with classical sensibilities, but also the sound of a band that is well balanced and almost meticulous toward their craft- both in the studio and on stage.
In 2017, MIXER completed the album – WILDLIFE, represented Taiwan by performing at the 2017 France Cannes MIDEM in Cannes and Paris, and kicked off their Eurasia tour.
